Our principal aim is to nurture all children, treating them as individuals and helping them achieve academic excellence. We follow the British education system and complement it with experiences that stimulate pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. This allows us to guarantee the highest standards of teaching and learning at all levels.
We comply with all of the Spanish curriculum requirements so that all of our pupils can obtain both their British qualifications as well as recognition of their studies by the Spanish authorities. The British education system is organised into blocks called ‘Key Stages.’ Each level has its own learning and development methods and objectives.
Key Stage 3 (Year 7 to Year 9)
This is the first stage of Secondary education. During these first three years, pupils have specialist teachers in each subject, as well as a tutor who provides support and guidance, in addition to overseeing the pupils’ well-being and general progress. Students at Key Stage 3 experience a broad and varied curriculum, developing a firm basis of skills and subject knowledge across a range of subjects.
Key Stage 4 (Year 10 and Year 11)
These two years are the last stage of compulsory Secondary education. Whilst some subjects remain compulsory, the curriculum adapts to pupils, offering them a range of options when choosing optional subjects based on their preferences or future career choices.
During this stage, both teachers and tutors work closely in order to help students to acquire good study habits, to learn to take responsibility for their actions and decisions, to develop the ability to make informed and considered lifestyle choices and to use their time effectively: in summary, to develop as well-rounded individuals, who are ready for life beyond Caxton College.
